democratic congressman from pennsylvania, retired navy admiral joe sestak and we're also joined by republican strategist and former santorum senior strategist, john brabender. here's what steven law, president of american crossroads said. quote, there is a broad concern about having blown a significant number of races because the wrong candidates were selected. we don't view ourselves as being in the incumbent protection business but we want to pick the most conservative candidate who can win, end quote. is he right there, or is this an act of war like breitbart says in the headline? >> i don't think it's an act of war. what they're saying is we can no longer just pick a candidate simply because they are a tea party candidate if they are really not a very good candidate. just because they can fill out a survey for the tea party effectively doesn't mean they are an effective candidate. what they're saying is, as long as there are better candidates who still live up to our republican idealogical beliefs but will be strong in november, this is where we should invest our time and energy. >> you'r
